Asia and the Environment Conference

Asia and the Environment poster

The success or failure of our attempts to deal with our global environmental challenges may well be decided in Asia, where unprecedented economic growth has been matched by unprecedented environmental devastation. We in the West have a vital stake in seeing Asia succeed, both economically and environmentally. This conference brought together experts on India and China to discuss some of the environmental issues that will impact the future of Asia and the world.

The conference was held in the Haub Executive Center on the Saint Joseph's University campus on March 20-21, 2009. The presentations are available as podcasts at here. The individual podcasts are located in the folder "Asia and the Environment" under "SJU Events and Organizations." You will need to have iTunes installed to view these podcasts.
